America is looming as a major customer for Australian mangoes and is expected to import up to 200 tonnes this season, compared to just 5 tonnes last year.



The first trays for 2016 are due to land in Los Angeles next week, and there to supervise their arrival will be Michael Daysh, a market development officer with the Northern Territory Department of Primary Industry.

"I'll be there to look at as many arrivals as possible over the next couple of weeks. We're expecting six to seven shipments
," Mr. Daysh said.




"My job is to have a solid look at that fruit and report back to exporters and growers.



"I'll be sending emails with pictures and details [and] we'll be looking for consistency of arrival and looking for happy importers and happy retailers."




The mango trade to the US started last year, with Australia exporting 5 tonnes of Calypso and Keitt mangoes.




About 20 growers and six exporters are now involved in the trade, with a wider range of varieties heading there this season, including Kensington Pride, R2E2s and Honey Gold.




Mr Daysh said the trade was growing solidly and the industry had set a target of exporting up to 1 million trays to America in 2020.




He said all the mangoes had so far been sourced from Queensland, but there were a number of Northern Territory growers interested in the US export market and would likely get involved during the 2016/17 season.

While "Flavor" is very subjective, and each country that grows mangoes is very nationalistic, these are the mango varieties that are the most sought after around the world because of sweetnesss (Brix) and demand.

The Chaunsa has a Brix rating in the 22 degree level which is unheard of!
Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.
Perhaps it is time for a GLOBAL taste test ???

INDIA 2016 : Mango production in state likely to take a hit this year

TNN | May 22, 2016, 12.32 PM IST






Mangaluru: Vagaries of nature is expected to take a toll on the production of King of Fruits - Mango - in Karnataka this year. A combination of failure of pre-monsoon showers at the flowering and growth stage and spike in temperature in mango growing belt of the state is expected to limit the total production of mango to an estimated 12 lakh tonnes in the current season as against 14 lakh tonnes in the last calendar year.



However, the good news for fruit lovers is that this could see price of mangoes across varieties decrease marginally by 2-3%. This is mainly on account of 'import' of the fruit from other mango-growing states in India, said M Kamalakshi Rajanna, chairperson, Karnataka State Mango Development and Marketing Corporation Ltd.




Karnataka is the third largest mango-growing state in India after Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra.
